On the morning of August 4, 1892, Lizzie Borden calls out to her maid: Someone’s killed Father. The brutal ax-murder of Andrew and Abby Borden in their home in Fall River, Massachusetts, leaves little evidence and many unanswered questions. While neighbors struggle to understand why anyone would want to harm the respected Bordens, those close to the family have a different tale to tell—of a father with an explosive temper; a spiteful stepmother; and two spinster sisters, with a bond even stronger than blood, desperate for their independence.





Why I'm Waiting: The story of Lizzie Borden has always fascinated me, and I'm a sucker for books around her story.

  3. I have an arc of this and started it, but then some other books got in the way. I'm a tad obsessed with the Lizzie Borden story as well so I'm hoping this is a good read.
